TT125 motor help

My friend's house is next to Braeswood bayou and during the hard rain on Memorial day holiday his house got flooded and this bike got completely submerged. When he was able to access the bike, he flushed all fluids and replaced with new and everything seemed to be working but he ever actually started the bike cuz the carbs were still dirty.
A couple of weekends ago he took the bike out of the garage to clean the carbs but the engine seemed seized... the quick start is not moving and not even trying to jump start I could get the wheel to move things.
Before I put the engine apart is there anything I could try?
My friend gave me the bike since he does not want to deal with it anymore... any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Rod

Pull the plugs and manually turn the motor with a socket wrench. Water could have corroded the rings a little and it just needs some extra push. If there is water in the heads, it'll evacuate through the plug holes. Don't try to turn it over with the plugs in, because water will not combust and can cause bent rods... it may be hydro-locked.

Definitely, or lots of WD-40. But after you get it loose and everything looks good, change the oil a few times to flush that stuff out so you have the proper lube back in there.

Marvel into the plug hole will work a treat. Don't be shy with it either. Let is sit for a day and give it a go.

When you get it freed up, don't forget to video the first time you start it.

Thanks again, I took it to Myla and she's going to play with this weekend. She is very hopeful that she can get it running again. If so, I'm letting her have it since she was looking to buy a scooter anyway... it came with the baja kit so it can be street legal
down in Palacios she will have all kinds of places to ride

You are too kind! Hope all goes well with it and it can serve a purpose again
